The Massachusetts 10th District is a political constituency that includes parts of the South Shore of Massachusetts, and includes all of Cape Cod and the islands. The tenth district has existed since 1795. It is currently represented in the United States House of Representatives by Bill Delahunt. With a Cook PVI of D+5, it is the most conservative district in the heavily Democratic state of Massachusetts. Republican Scott Brown won 60% of the vote here in the 2010 senate special election.[1] Delahunt announced on March 5, 2010 that he would not run for reelection, setting of a scramble among both Democrats and Republicans to succeed him
